A highly effective way of treating musculoskeletal disorders to help restore you back to health
Osteopaths are guided by a number of principles when they treat patients.
The first is the ‘artery is king’. That is to say that osteopaths believe that by improving circulation to joints, muscles, nerves, fascia and other tissue we can help the body heal itself.
The second is that function and structure are interrelated. From a practical perspective this means that if the structure- the skeleton- is not moving as it should then the function of muscles, ligaments and tendons will be compromised, often leading to pain. The converse is also true. If muscles, tendons or ligaments are damaged then specific parts of the skeleton, such as joints, will also be compromised.
Osteopaths identify the parts of the structure, most often joints, that are not moving as they should and mobilise them and return them to movement. In turn this allows the associated muscles, ligaments and tendons to return to normal function.
The third principle is that the Osteopaths treat the body as a whole. Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of Osteopathy in the late 19th Century, wrote of the ‘Triune of Man’. Mind , Body and Spirit and he taught that Osteopaths should be treating all three aspects of man’s health.
Hugo, as a modern day Osteopath, combines specific hands on techniques for improving muscle tissue and joint mobility with really effective and unique Functional 3D exercise therapy developed by the Gray Institute. These exercises help you relearn the most efficient way for a specific part of the body to move which maintains your muscle and joint optimal function. Hugo will also raise your awareness of how the stresses and strains of modern day life take their toll on our bodies and discuss strategies for managing them more effectively.
